mahmoud ahmadinejad. >> yes. thanks. that is it for this special report. fair and balanced and unafraid. >> shep: this is the fox report. developing tonight word that state department is pulling more staffers from our embassy in libya while more lawmakers demand answers on the attack that killed our ambassador. israeli prime minister draws the line, a red line on iran. plus, rescuing football. >> they should have never had them in the first place. >> shep: after weeks of bad calls the frustrated fans, the replacement refs are getting the booted. >> we're thrilled to get an eight year agreement.
7:01pm
>> deal that put the real refs on the field in less than 90 minutes. >> searching for jimmy hoffa. a tipster says he thinks he saw him buried under a driveway. >> crazy. >> now a plan to start digging, again. >> plus, a desperate situation aboard a passenger plane. front landing gear twist attend no way to fix it. how a last second development may have saved everybody on board. the moment when panic and tears turn to applause on a jet at j.f.k. but first from fox this thursday night. the united states is pulling more staffers from our embassy at libya for security reasons. that is what officials are telling fox news. they say the move is temporary and they hope to send the workers back next week. the u.s. cut the staff to
7:02pm
emergency levels after the attack on the consul in benghazi. now fox news has learned that officials are calling it a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours, not one but two sources say investigators suspected a group with ties to al-qaeda was to blame. a few days later obama officials were still telling a different story. >> the best assessment we have today that in fact this was not a preplanned attack. that what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the day after that comment. jay carney said it is i think self-evident what happened in
7:03pm
benghazi was a terrorist attack. he says the president agrees. quote, it is certainly the case it is in our view that the president's view that it was a terrorist attack. our chief intelligence correspondent katherine heritage what more are we learning. >> reporter: within 24 hours of attack, u.s. intelligence officials believe it was terrorism and the work of a specific group with an al-qaeda affiliate in north africa. there were strong leads that al-qaeda's affiliate working with a second group that wants to make an state. but no one believes that it was just the work of mob. defense secretary telling reporters that benghazi was a terrorist attack that it did take him some time to reach that conclusion. >> reason it pretty clearly was a terrorist group because a group of terrorists, obviously
7:04pm
conducted that attack on the consulate, against individuals. what terrorists were involved i still think remains to be determined by the investigation. >> reporter: a spokesman for the director of national intelligence telling fox that the best intelligence was provided to the administration, updates were also provided as additional intelligence came in and offered a more complete picture of the circumstances. >> shep: two weeks later, f.b.i. hasn't been able to get to the scene of the crime. they haven't been able to get to the city? >> reporter: they say the f.b.i. investigation needs to play out. there are no f.b.i. agents on the ground in benghazi because the security situation is too ten us on. the chairman of homeland security it smacks of a pre-9/11 mind set. >> one thing we learned back on september 11th, no longer assume
7:05pm
these are criminal matters, they are terrorists, terrorist attacks. >> reporter: and late today the democrats on the senate foreign relations committee sent this to the deputy secretary of state. for more information on the attacks and security arrangements neither the u.s. or libyan government had intelligence prior to the attacks. >> shep: the leader of israel delivered a warning to the world only months remain to stop iran from developing a nuclear bomb. benjamin netanyahu spoke this afternoon. his comments come one day after iran's president addressed the same leaders at the u.n. and today the israeli prime minister warned that iran could enter the final stages of enriching uranium for a potential bomb by next summer. >> ladies and gentlemen the relevant question is noted when iran will get the bomb.
7:06pm
relevant question at what stage can we no longer stop iran from getting the bomb? the red line must be drawn on iran's nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target. >> shep: israeli officials say they could soon strike iran's nuclear facilities with or without help from the united states. west has been using economic penalties to get them to abandon their program but so far, they haven't worked. >> there is an urgency that the israelis feel that the rest of the world doesn't. they are at arm's length from the iran regime that has a nuclear agenda. >> the israelis are feeling both the mentality and course of action that the u.s. has taken and west in general is naive. >> and she also said the prime
7:07pm
minister came to the united nations this could be his last chance to convince that the iranian regime is the greatest threat on the planet. jonathan hunted is there tonight. prime minister of israel said today that there is no doubt at all that the iranians are building a bomb. >> reporter: none whatsoever. in the israeli's prime minister's mind. the world is faced with a fight with what he called modern government and those that would turn us to medieval times. there is no doubt whatsoever that iran is support of global terrorism and then he put a simple and dramatic question to the assembled delegates. >> so i ask you, given this record of iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just
7:08pm
imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine the long-range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads armed with atomic bombs. who among you would feel safe in the middle east? who would be safe in europe? who would be safe in america? >> reporter: so in the eyes of the prime minister, this is not a complex issue at all. the world is faced with a very simple choice. >> shep: we talked about a red line over there. he made it clear what the red line is for israel? >> yes, keeping that simple theme in his speech some would say simplistic, the prime minister used the most basic of visual aids to show the development of a nuclear weapon in three simple stages.
7:09pm
listen.... >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: that was message aimed quite squarely at white house. white house responded through the national security spokesman saying, quote, as the prime minister said the united states and israel share the goal of preventing iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. the president made that clear to the world in his u.n. general assembly speech this week. we will continue our close consultation and cooperation toward achieving that goal. to that end we are told that the president obama and israeli prime minister will talk on the phone at some point tomorrow. secretary of state hillary
7:10pm
clinton is due to be meeting with mr. netanyahu right about now here in new york. also worth pointing out that u.s. intelligence officials have consistently said they believe iran is at least one year away from being able to develop a nuclear weapon and they are not clear that the iranian regime has made the decision to go down that path. >> shep: thank you. mahmoud ahmadinejad also addressed the u.n. today and accused israel of ethnic cleansing. he said that is what the israelis are doing by demolishing homes in east jerusalem. palestinian leader struck a note of optimism in miss comments. >> despite all the complexities of the reality and all what we face in the international community there is a chance, maybe the last to save the two-state solution and side with
7:11pm
peace. >> shep: they don't want to get rid of israel but they wanted a state of their own for palestinians. >> police in minneapolis are searching for a suspect in an office shooting that left two people dead and several others wounded. live pictures the area on the crime scene on the north side of the city. it happened at a company called accent signage systems. according to fox 9 in minneapolis, cops arrived to find the front door propped open and number of victims inside. the suspect was fired from his job this morning and cops know who he is. a hospital says they are treating three victims all of them critical. updates as fox reports live. >> football replacement refs are history. in fact espn reports the officials are scheduled to work

7:15pm
>>. >> shep: we just survived a crisis that threatened the foundation of american life -- the football ref strike. regular refs are scheduled to work tonight. it started in a lockout in june. it had fans and players and coaches, well, rip out their hair and we saw the replacement refs make fools of themselves. and they made two different calls on this thing. seahawks took the game from the packers. that may have helped light a fire under the league to make a deal. although today, roger guidel said, no that didn't....
7:16pm
>> we were intense negotiations for last ten days. there were plann meetings and we met all through the weekend, planned meetings for tuesday morning. i think it was another fact they kept pushing us, this is the right thing to do. >> shep: pushing us like millions of twreets. numbers of referees union are scheduled to vote to ratify the deal but he has lifted the lockout when the ravens host the browns, the real refgs are scheduled to take the field. still it might not be until we see the replacements. tell us first, rick, what this deal includes? >> competition is impressive skrg krg it's a part-time job. agreement runs eight years with retirement benefits $20,000 a year and rising salaries from last year's average of about
7:17pm
$149,000 to $173,000 next year and $205,000 in 2019. more refs will be hired, some full time but it doesn't mean there won't be another bad call. >> you will never want to see a game end like that and never end on a controversial play. in 32 years, as a league employee, that is something you always would like to see avoided, but it naps sports. >> reporter: espn reporting that the deal includes $2.5 million ratification bonus. >> shep: what are we getting from players? >> reporter: mostly positive. i talked to a.j. hawk. he is not priced. what happened in monday night the real refs would be back soon. his teammate guard gained 90,000 followers after tweeting about the bad call and then he wrote this. good to see the regular refs coming back. i'm sure the scabs have to return to their job at foot
7:18pm
locker. some of the replacement refgs could be back part of a training program still might fish yate games down the road. >> shep: hockey is in the lockout, but we've heard nothing but hours ago, they cancelled the entire pre-season schedule. the league and players' association is set to resume talks tomorrow. big issue how to put up more than $3 billion in annual revenue. the regular season is supposed to begin two weeks from today. >> police in michigan are reexamining one of biggest mysteries in american history. disappearance of the union boss jimmy hoffa. they are digging up a driveway and looking for a body, but why did it take four decades, hey, ethyl in the driveway, let's look it thank you.
7:19pm

7:20pm
7:21pm
7:22pm
up? >>. >> shep: i think i covered one of these searches 18 years ago. here we are again, the search for jimmy hoffa turned to a driveway in suburban detroit. according to a police chief in roseville, michigan, a man said he saw a body buried there about 35 years ago and he thinks it may have been of the former teamsters boss. why not? he went missing back in 1975. he was last scene seen outside a restaurant before he was set to meet with a local ma yeah captain and labor leader. radar reveals something is under there and they plan to take a soil sample and test it for human remains. still the police chief does not feel confident. >> we are not saying there is
7:23pm
jimmy hoffa but there is possibly a body in this area. it's about the time frame he disappeared but the time frame is off. >> shep: this is not the first time they responded to a tip. they have been following leads an digging up possible burial sites. in 2003 they searched in backyard pool. in 2006 the f.b.i. sent two weeks digging at a horse farm, no hoffa. trace gallagher with the news. police keep saying they don't think it's jimmy hoffa, why all the interest? >> couple reasons, it's one of unsolved mysteries and the cops started this by saying this new witness was credible. they went i.d. this guy but there are reports of dying of cancer and that is why he wants to come clean. first thing he told police, the home in the driveway once belonged to a bookie for the
7:24pm
mob. about the time that jimmy hoffa disappeared he saw a body in a plastic bag being put in the ground where the driveway is. for the most part the cops believe it. listen. >> we do believe there is enough informational we have to do our due diligence and follow-up investigation to see if there is a body in this location and try to find out who that person is and get remains back to their loved ones. >> reporter: kind of risky place to dump a body because it's right around the corner from a police station. >> shep: there is something under that driveway, are they saying what they think it might be? >> reporter: they used ground penetrating radar and dirt was disturbed under the driveway, fancy way of saying there is something down there. it could be a dog. it could be a suitcase. it could be a body. the first thing they'll do is take that soil sample you mentioned and give it to a forensic anthropologist and if it is in fact human remains they
7:25pm
will dig up the driveway. this is sparking a whole lot of interest in the neighborhood. >> shep: i was in the union when jimmy went missing. so i have an interested, of course. i thought i'm in the neighborhood and come and see if he was there or not. >> reporter: soil sample gets pulled out tomorrow. we should know by tuesday or wednesday if in fact there are human remiansz under that driveway. >> shep: we'll see. you have to line up and play the game. trace gallagher, thank you. >> turns out economy is doing worse than we thought. that is the word from the feds. we'll get reaction from the white house. speaking of president obama and governor romney campaigning in the same state but a different state but they are there together. we'll hear from them and show our brand-new fox news polls, what voters have to say about

7:31pm
pleaded guilty to assault and battery charges which leads to the dog. i'm shepard smith. it's the bottom of the hour and fox's top stories. worst drought in more than a century helped drag down the american economy and experts say it could get worse. according to the u.s. commerce department economy drew 3.1%. that is lower than the government's of -- 1.3% and that is lower than 1.7%. the drought and consumer spending contributed to the drop in the rate of economic growth. some analysts say the drought will continue to hurt the economy for months. republicans claim the numbers show that the president's policies have failed while the white house points out that the economy has grown for a dozen consecutive quarters. according to a new fox news polls of likely voters, 44%
7:32pm
approve of the president's handling of the economy compared to 35% two years ago. john reports is following the romney campaign and live tonight but first, let's get to ed henry live outside the white house. you would think the bad economic news would have the president scrambling? >> especially on top of that economic growth number you mentioned which is very weak, durable goods, that came in. it's down 13.2%. washing machines and things that are supposed to last three years. it was the worst drop since 2009 when we were in recession and president took office. nonetheless, the president is out on the trail to gain the battleground of virginia, basically trying to say, look, this is going to take more time. take a listen. >> during campaign season you hear a lot about patriotism.
7:33pm
you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle-class. i won't pretend that getting there is easy. the truth is it's going to take a few more years to solve challenges that have built up over decades. >> in addition to the bad news, some of those bad numbers, there are numbers on housing prices, they are up this week. also, kon consumer confidence, it had dropped in august. this fits in the white house narrative they believe that it's turning the corner slowly. >> shep: if our polls mean anything, the white house may have a pointed there because it appears from the polls at least that his narrative is breaking through and he is not getting blame here. >> no doubt. when you look at the latest poll on the question who do you trust more on the economy, president has an edge, a small one but
7:34pm
voters told us 47% of them said we trust the president more, 46% said they trusted mitt romney. if you asked anybody six months ago if you have an incumbent versus a challenger who is making the economy and business background you would expect those numbers to be flipped and certainly for mitt romney to have an edge. he doesn't have an edge on the economy, at least not right now that is tell you why he is trailing in a lot of battleground states. >> shep: president obama and governor romney campaigned in virginia. president was the first won to win that stated. he took aim at governor romney's commented not would to worry about 47% of americans that don't pay income tax and dependent on government and never take personal responsibility for their lives? >> in 2008, 47% of this country did not vote for me. i don't know how many of you out there will be voting for me.
7:35pm
[ cheers and applause ] >> but i'll be fighting for you no matter what. i'm not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs i'm fighting to create american jobs. i'm not fighting to improve schools in blue states or red states, i'm fighting to improve schools in united states. >> shep: fox news poll shows half of likely voters say they are familiar with the video of governor romney talking about the 47%. president obama was in virginia beach around the same time governor romney was speaking to the american legion. what did the governor have to say? >> he was driving his military message at a post here in springfield talking to veterans about the potential effect of those massive defense cuts in the looming sequestration, saying in the state of virginia it could be responsible for the loss of 136,000 jobs and when it
7:36pm
came to military readiness and national security, along with the medical needs of the thousands of returning veterans from iraq and afghanistan, it could be a disaster. >> this is a crisis. in this kind of circumstance, given the threats around the world. given the need for employment here, given the need of our veterans, how in the world as commander in chief you could stand by as we shrink our military commitment is something i don't understand and i will reverse it. >> reporter:at the same time. governor picked up the endorsement of 42 medal of honor recipients. >> shep: we're seeing another old video of governor romney? >> from 1985 as bain capital, it was a video presentation where governor romney then just mitt romney was talking about the goals of being bain capital to invest in start-up companies and then take and manage them and
7:37pm
five to eight years and harvest them at a significant profit. obama campaign jumped over the word harvest, it's clear that he was only interested in making profits through bain capital and not interested in creating jobs. here is the response from the romney campaign, saying, quote, in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital by turning around broken companies and creating and saving thousands of jobs. we should point out this idea of harvesting is a common term in private equity and venture capital. it usually doesn't happen according to one manager until the company has grown significantly and a lot of jobs created. >> shep: john, that is going. we're less than a week from the first presidential debate. we'll be there in denver next wednesday. then watch bret baier and megyn kelly with prime time coverage. it starts just before 9:00 eastern time, 7:00 in the mountain time zone right here on
